Restaurant technology is evolving at a quicker rate than ever before. Technology companies offering these solutions have become faster and more efficient at deploying their products at scale, and because of that, there’s greater accessibility to technology that’s easier than ever to use. And with so many competitors entering the market and driving down costs, purchasing technology is now more feasible for even the smallest restaurant operators.
However, this tech boom is causing a lot of confusion for restaurant owners. With hundreds of new technology categories popping up – from on-table devices to point of sale (POS) technology – restaurateurs face the difficulty of trying to decipher fads from must-have solutions and determine which tools will have the desired impact on their business. Depending on the business needs, fad technology might be the answer. If long-term solutions are required, foundational technology is more likely the answer.

Before you dive into selecting suppliers, make sure to determine which are most relevant to your business needs.
